Cone Head

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

Our family dog went in for emergency leg surgery. When it was time for her to come home, I told my daughter that the dog would have to wear a cone for a few months. Concerned, Ava asked, “Will there at least be ice cream in the cone?”

My son got a bump on his head because the dog pulled him down the stairs. When the nurse asked him what kind of dog we have, Liam simply answered, “Oh, she’s a licker.”

Our family dog kept tailing our daughter around the house one day. She finally turned around to face him and said, “Stop following me on Twitter!”

algae-eating fishMy son was counting all of his animals, and he listed one dog and two fish. We then reminded him he actually had three fish. My son replied, “You mean the fish that cleans the algae? He’s not a pet. He’s my helper!”
